What to do

Shark cage diving

Don’t miss out on enjoying some of the more extreme activities in and around Cape Town. From climbing Lion’s Head and sand-boarding up the West Coast to hang gliding off Table Mountain to shark cage diving off the coast of Gansbaai, the Mother City has a lot to offer adrenalin seeking visitors and locals.

Shark cage dives take place out at Dyer Island, which is about a 15 minutes by boat from Gansbaai and offers visitors the unique and thrilling experience of seeing great white sharks in their natural environment. The island is the home to approximately 50 000 Cape Fur Seals which tempt the sharks into the surrounding waters as they are the predator’s primary source of nutrition. As the shark is a surface feeder, all the activity takes place close to or on the surface, ensuring good viewing for those on the boat, who may not want to venture into the water.

Sightings are highly likely but can not be guaranteed. The best days and times for viewing should always be checked with your selected tour operator prior to booking.
